Marie Naffah has released her brand new single ‘The Cage’. The track has a retro backing with and groovy vibe. Her vocals have such a soulful sound like it was meant for a 1970’s soundtrack. Marie’s captivating lyricism addressing the need to break free with a stunning soulful vocal that calls to mind the likes of Florence Welch, Lily Moore, and Maggie Rogers.
Regarding the single Marie says, “‘The Cage’ is the invisible shell that sits around you like a tomb, stopping you from living as freely as you might like. It’s claustrophobic, oppressive, stifling and poison. For me, my cage was London. Your cage could be anything – your job, your doubts, your fears or your mother’s expectations. This song invites you to dance out of it.”
The visual is intimate and features scenes of nature views that are to die for. It makes you feel free as she has the best time of her life.
This is the first taste of Marie’s forthcoming EP, which has been recorded with Neil Comber (Florence + The Machine, Glass Animals, Charlie XCX), Matt Colton (Arctic Monkeys, Christine and the Queens) and Simon Byrt (Pixx, Charlotte OC, Babeheaven).
Over the course of just a couple of singles Marie has sold out a string of headline London shows including Omeara, The Lexington, Camden Assembly and Ronnie Scott’s, while clocking up great critical support along the way. And now the forthcoming EP is set to be a pivotal point in what has already been an incredible journey for the singer.
